People living in Northumberland are being asked for their views about a range of issues, including what it is like to live in the area, what they think needs improving and how satisfied they are with how the county council runs things.

More than 8,000 questionnaires are being sent by post over the next few weeks to a random sample of residents in the County to help the Council to prioritise and develop its services. The results of the survey are expected in January.

The questionnaire is being carried out on behalf of the council by market research experts Ipsos Mori. All completed surveys will be treated confidentially and only seen by IpsosMori. Northumberland Council will receive a report on the overall findings.

Deputy Leader for Northumberland County Council, Coun Dave Ledger said: “It’s really important that we ask the people of Northumberland for their views on the area, our services and their priorities.

“The residents’ survey is one of the ways in which we do this.

“If you receive one of the questionnaires please do take the time to complete and return it.

“We are here to serve the people of Northumberland so it’s crucial we know what residents think and care about, especially during these difficult financial time.”
